Partner James Haggerty Named to 2017 Top 100 Philadelphia Super Lawyers List

Posted By Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C.

Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C. is pleased to announce that Partner James C. Haggerty has been selected for inclusion in the Philadelphia Top 100 list by Super Lawyers® Magazine. As one of the most prestigious achievements in the legal profession, recognition among the Top Lists curated by Super Lawyers Magazine sets attorneys even further apart from attorneys who were recognized in this year’s list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers. Mr. Haggerty has also been included on the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Top List for 10 years or more demonstrating a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Each year, Super Lawyers Magazine publishes an annual list of attorneys who have demonstrated the highest standards of professional achievement and ability. This list is curated using a rigorous selection process unique to Super Lawyers, and which consists of various steps that evaluate attorneys on multiple indicators of professional excellence, including notable case results, client satisfaction, peer recognition, stature in the legal community and more. Attorneys who make the final list must pass all phases of the process:

  • Nominations – Lawyers must be nominated for consideration and are prohibited from campaigning for inclusion. Valid nominations come in the form of peer nominations, third party feedback, votes from the Super Lawyers research team, or surveys collected from managing partners across the state.
  • Independent research – Nominees are independently evaluated using a point system to maintain objectivity. This independent research vets candidates on multiple factors that indicate success and professional abilities, and include reviews of an attorney’s professional accolades, special licenses, standing with the bar, community service, contribution to the legal field, experience and education, and representative verdicts or settlements.
  • Panel Evaluation – A Blue Ribbon panel evaluates attorneys who earn the highest point totals during the independent research phase. These panels are comprised of recognized legal professionals who practice in the same legal areas as candidates. Based on accumulated point totals from both independent research and peer evaluation, the top attorneys are selected to the final list.

Attorneys who pass the patented selection process earn final inclusion in the annual list of Super Lawyers, which in itself is a significant achievement earned by no more than 5% of all practicing lawyers in the state! In addition to earning inclusion to the list of Super Lawyers, Mr. Haggerty was further distinguished by being selected to the Philadelphia Super Lawyers Top 100 list.

This additional recognition speaks volumes about the respect Mr. Haggerty has cultivated throughout the local and legal communities, and places him among the top legal minds in Philadelphia. Backed by over 30 years of experience, and a background in insurance defense, Mr. Haggerty has leveraged his insurance insight to advocate on behalf of the injured and the wronged, and to level the playing field between clients who face off against large corporate powers.

Because the attorney one chooses can make all the difference in the outcome of a case, Super Lawyers Magazine has become an established resource for legal consumers. Local residents in need of proven representation can rely on the lists published by Super Lawyers during the attorney selection phase, and can feel confident about choosing an attorney who is continually recognized among the top lawyers in the region.

Mr. Haggerty’s experience and his passion for making a true difference in the lives of victims and families has not only earned him recognition as a Top Lawyer by Super Lawyers (and continued inclusion to the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers each year since its inception), but has also driven our firm’s success and ability to secure millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of the men, women, and families we represent. We are proud to have Mr. Haggerty as one of our firm’s founders, and believe his commitment to professional excellence makes the difference for our clients.
